Pack your bags we’re going to Paris!In case you haven’t noticed, I really want to go to Paris and I want to go NOW! But when you can’t pack up and go to this beautiful city, why not just dress like you can … because like Paris, Stripes and Tulle is always a good idea 😉I’m beyond obsessed with this Alice and Olivia skirt (last seen here), there’s something so classic yet over-the-top about black tulle and you can wear it with almost everything. This tiered tulle skirt is the perfect way to bring the drama to a basic sweater that you might normally wear with jeans and really amp things up. I feel like every-girl should own something that make’s her feel as pretty as this gorgeous skirt can, to wear with a little striped sweater in Paris, or somewhere else when you’re just day dreaming.I totally broke the short girl code with this outfit – all fun sized girls should avoid ankle booties – whoops. Most fashion experts will say if you’re height challenged like me, you should avoid a black ankle boot & bare leg combo because it chops you up. This is totally true, especially if you aren’t super skinny and eat donuts on the daily, but I kind of don’t care… 🙂 I usually get around this by wearing ankle booties black tights, leggings or jeans to continue the line without creating a harsh chop, but decided to go against that advise again today! Bottom line is the boots kind of chop me up, but I like the harsh contrast with the full tulle skirt to give this over-the-top look a hint of edge. I know, I know fashion rules are made for a reason… and I think that reason is to know them, learn then, live by them… and break them!I probably won’t be returning to Parié any time soon, but until then Waffles and I will continue to eat our weight in macaroons, play dress up here in New York, and count the days until Paris Fashion Week, care to join us?
If you too have Paris Fever check out Friday’s post before you pack your bags, and make sure you create room for me in your carry on… Oh and Waffles too!
